Everything is New, Again
We are now in the month of May and the kids are enjoying the nice weather and seeing all the flowering plants growing around the school and
the flowers on the trees.
Last month we learned about flowers. The kids got the chance to make books with pictures of different types of flowers as well as books of the parts of the flower. They also dissected a flower and made a collage out of the parts. Students used paper to make a flower garden by gluing down flowers, stems and cut paper to make grass. They also got to plant either nasturtium, sunflower or daisy seeds.
During the month of April, Eric Ode visited the school to perform an Earth Day concert. The kids also got the chance to be in their own concert: The Spring Showcase. I was so glad to see so many Rojo students there. They did a great job!
At the end of April, we held Student-Led visits where the students showed you their classroom and some of their favorite works. I was so glad to see that everyone was able to come. The kids really enjoyed having you come.
After the passing of our old classroom pet, Chocolate, we gained two baby guinea pigs as pets. The kids voted on the names and came up with Brownie and Licorice.
This month we will be learning about ladybugs. We will be learning about the parts of the ladybug and the lifecycle of the ladybug. We will bring ladybug larva into the classroom and watch them grow into ladybugs.
